Terms and conditions

Of course there are T&Cs – it’s not easy talking about self-injury, it’s even harder writing about it

LifeSIGNS is managed and led by people with personal experience of self-injury, and we are non-judgemental, non-directional, and respectful of our members’ and visitors’ life experiences and perceptions. We offer guidance, ideas and inspiration; never advice.

Information directly produced by LifeSIGNS is appropriate for our various audiences to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication. Information and guidance is provided for general reference and inspiration only, and should not be considered as a substitute for the advice of a health care professional.

LifeSIGNS is not liable for other websites even if shared via the LifeSIGNS website or social media channels.

Always talk to a health care professional when concerned about your health and happiness.
